A breast cancer survivor’s picture of her all-over chest tattoo has gone viral this morning after being banned from Facebook.

The tattoo was done by an Ontario based ink design collective called Custom Tattoo Design. They were so inspired by the woman’s story that they posted the picture above on their Facebook page. Citing a violation of it’s terms of services regarding nudity, Facebook keeps removing the image. Custom Tattoo Design keeps reposting with this message; “Hello Everyone, this tattoo was done for a woman who had breast cancer. Facebook keeps removing the post in 24 hours as an offensive photo do to nudity. However we feel this woman is both brave and strong so were going to post it anyways and ask for your awareness and support; Please like and share this photo quickly to show your support for this and many other women have lost so much.”

The campaign is working. When I checked just a few minutes ago, 170,026 Facebookers ‘like’ their post and 137,044 have shared it!

Do you find the picture offensive? My grandmother was a very special lady who survived breast cancer. Do you know a survivor?
